-level officers and enlisted that are so important to the leadership of our military and chuck hagel's leadership and commitment will be critical to that task. i have met with chuck hagel privately, i've asked him tough questions about iran and israel. i'm satisfied on those points that he will advise the president in according to with -- in accord with those policies but even more important i am struck by his passion, the intensity of his commitment to our men and women in uniform. his caring about them is indicated in so many ways. spontaneously and strongly in his testimony, as well as his private conversations. he will make sure that sexual assault in the military, the epidemic and scourge of rape and assault against men and women who serve and sacrifice for this country will be stopped, that there will be, in fact, zero tolerance not only in word but in deed. and his viewing, for example, of the documentary "invisible war," his understanding that this kind of misconduct is an outrage never to be even implicitly condoned and to be treated as a criminal offense, the most extreme kind of predat

their love. they're showing their love for chuck hagel by filibustering his nomination. now they're showing their love for america's children by refusing to endorse universal preschool. their showing their love for workers by refusing to raise the minimum wage. they're showing their love for all americans by refusing to accept a reasonable compromise to avoid the sequester. in other words they don't love any of us. they hate us all! that's their valentine's day message. all right. we'll expand on that and a whole lot more on today's full court press. but today, we get the latest, the current news update from lisa ferguson out in los angeles. good morning to you. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. the president is on his way to georgia this morning to talk about universal pre. doesn't is a proposal he unveiled in his state of the union address on tuesday saying he wants to ensure high-quality schooling for every 4-year-old in the country. today, obama is visiting a prekindergarten classroom at an early childhood learning center and then he's speaking at a community recreation center in geor

. but sometimes i read in the newspapers that republicans are filibustering, for example senator hagel as if a majority of republicans or a majority of the senate intended to deny the nomination to senator hagel through a filibuster, when in fact what most of the republicans were saying was the nomination of the former senator has come to the floor only two days ago. we have senators who got legitimate questions about the nomination and we'd like some time to discuss it. in that case we were forced to have a vote on a motion by the majority leader to cut off debate on thursday before the recess even though the democratic leadership and the white house had been told by republican senators, enough of us, that if we voted after the recess there would be plenty of votes to make sure that the president's nominee had an up-or-down vote, as we have done throughout history in the united states senate. for whatever reason, the majority leader and the white house felt that they had to push through a vote and then went into a large complaint that republicans are filibustering the president's nomi

chuck hagel survived the filibuster. now president obama's pick for defense secretary could see a vote in the full senate as soon as this afternoon. keep in mind, all of this happening on the same day that obama's nomination for treasury secretary jack lew cleared the senate finance committee an heads to the floor. that is expected tomorrow. >>> coming up, slamming a spaceship into an asteroid on purpose. yep. that's the game plan for keeping the earth out of harm's way when another space rock comes hurdling towards us. will this work? some answers straight ahead. i've always had to keep my eye on her... but, i didn't always watch out for myself. with so much noise about health care... i tuned it all out. with unitedhealthcare, i get information that matters... my individual health profile. not random statistics. they even reward me for addressing my health risks. so i'm doing fine... but she's still going to give me a heart attack. we're more than 78,000 people looking out for more than 70 million americans. that's health in numbers. unitedhealthcare. capella university understands nu

the state of the union tomorrow. and we hope on wednesday and/or thursday we'll be able to finish the hagel nomination. mr. president, there's never in the history of the country ever been a filibuster on a defense secretary, and i'm confident there won't be on this one. but i'm told the committee will report this matter out tomorrow, and we will move this to the senate floor just as quickly as possible. and then we have coming in the near future -- we of course, we have to -- when we get back we'll try to complete the national security director, mr. brennan, and we'll do mr. lew, who will be the secretary of treasury. and of course we have -- we're going to have some votes this -- we'll line up this week as to what we're going do when we get back after the work period we're going to have at home for five days. so i look forward to a productive night. i hope we can complete these votes, because there's people who've worked very, very hard on this, not the least of which has been the presiding officer, the chairman of the judiciary committee, who has worked on this matter for a number of yea

generals and our acting secretary of defense, secretary hagel now concur with. so we're okay with defense, and most of all the military is okay with it. then we also cut domestic spending. here we cut $27 billion, cuts in the farm bill. it eliminates subsidies that we don't need to do anymore. the presiding officer is from an agricultural state. we love your cheese. we even from time to time cheer on the green bay packers, but -- from time to time. but at the same time -- so we know agriculture is important, but essentially we have a tax subsidy structure that goes back to the 1930's. a different economy, a dust bowl, people vacating homes in oklahoma and following the grapes of wrath trail to california. so we came up through the new deal a way of subsidizing farms, restoring the land and restoring people to their land. but a lot of those subsidies aren't needed anymore, and quite frankly a lot of it goes to agribusiness for crops we don't even plant. so working with the agriculture committee, the appropriations didn't just do this out of the blue. we come up with $27.5 billion. now, muc
